MULLINAVAT GAA - The hurling season got underway on Good Friday with the Junior B team playing John Lockes of Callan in a first round of the league in Mullinavat. Unfortunately it proved to be an unsuccessful start as they were beaten by 6 points. I’m sure this team will improve over the coming weeks when they get back to the field and long awaited ball work on the sod. The final score line John Lockes 1-13 Mullinavat 1-7.
The Mullinavat junior team made their return to the Junior ranks last Saturday with a game in the Junior League against Dunnamaggin. It proved to be a successful start for this team in their first game in the Junior ranks and they won on a score line of Mullinavat 2-11 Dunnamaggin 1-9. The Junior teams next fixture is an away game to Dicksboro in Palmerstown at 2pm on Sunday 7th April. With the season up and running games will be coming thick and fast for both these teams
